YES...the lack of standardization in labeling is confusing, which is why you just have to try stuff out to find what works for you.

I have been a big fan of a Yellow Sumatra from one of the first vendors I ever used. Now that supply is running low and I cannot find it from my Canadian vendors....still looking.

We are in direct contact with our growers and that is the process as explained to me by each of them separately . True yellows should alwys be a bit more pricey if the are the same price as all the vendors other strains odds are they arent true yellows

I think a lot depends on the farmer and or vendor. One farmer could call yellows dried white veins, gold dried green veins, and dried red veins would be brown or chocolate. Another farmer could call dried reds-yellow so who really knows.

All yellow strains start off as a red vein. It is the drying process alone that converts the reds to yellows the leaves are rehydrated ( wet ) several times throughout the drying process this process causes the red to fade to yellow and retains the potency of the red while converting the alkaloids from sedative to energizing

Ordered Borneo Yellow Vein....Yellows are created when the leaves are much younger and still yellow....it creates a feeling more intense that the already "fast" white Borneo. I spoke with a Kratom farmer on this and verified it with Kratom Trading Company out of Florida. I highly recommend you try Kraton Trading Co....GREAT prices on Maeng Da (65 for 1/4 kilo) and 55 a 1/4 kilo for most others..get even more value for a 1/2 and a full kilo. I believe 225 for a kilo of Maeng Da and 205 for a kilo of most others and they have a huge selection.

But to answer your question, if it is a true yellow, this is derived from a white vein plant at an early stage which produces a product with more potent alkaloids than if they waited until it was fully grown. This was something they found out not too long ago and it does not add to the cost as it is not any extra work. Highly recommend Yellow Vein Borneo if you can find it. If you can't, again, try Kratom Trading Company.

I do not work for them, just a fan of their K. B) :-P :-bd

I don't burn Yellows too often, but one, in particular, blew me away. It was the yellow Kali from HCK Wellness last summer. Amazing mood lift that, to this day, I haven't been able to replicate.

I purchased a yellow and green combination , called lemon drop. It's an amazing mix! Lots of energy and pain relieving effects.. I tend to mix strains often and this combo, sometimes add some red md, is the best

I don't know how reputable these places are, but here are pieces of info I found:

Kraoma (Link) states:
"Those of you who like Red Bali will love our new Yellow Bali. It's potent and has many of the same characteristics.

This yellow strain comes from a Red Vein Bali leaf that's dried differently. This new drying method causes the vein to turn yellow and slightly alters the alkaloids in the leaf."

Kratom IQ (Link) states:
"So, Let’s Talk More About Yellow Indo Kratom

Yellow Indo Kratom, as the name suggests, is a yellow slow strain grown in Indonesia.

Indonesian farmers use old leaves and an ancient, more complicated drying process to achieve a yellow vein strain. And the result is that yellow strains have their own very unique aroma compared to red, white or green indo Kratom, making for a gripping and fascinating experience."

There are a couple more easily retrieved links stating the same type of thing. I then searched for a more detailed account of the differences in the drying process, but haven't found anything yet. I'll update if I do.
Work hard, play hard, rest hard, rinse and repeat...

Thanks for the info. I might give Kraoma a try. My go-to vendor is kratom paradise. I have tried their yellow strains, but still prefer white due to the energy it provides. Kratom paradise awards discount points as well and is about 15 dollars cheaper for 250g. They are truly so awesome, but I will check out yours to change things up. Always like to try something new.
